180 Years of Emancipation- Some Perspective

Submitted by Mohammed Degia

On August 1, 1838, enslaved people across the British Caribbean gained their freedom. Contrary to what is often peddled about the singular role of abolitionists in ending transatlantic slavery, there were two main reasons for abolition- economic and rebellions. The British did not in some great moralistic and ethical wave bestow freedom upon the enslaved. The system was altered because slavery had become an economic liability. Furthermore, the planters lived with the constant fear of slaves rebelling and of another Haiti transpiring. In the end, it was better to agree to free the enslaved than to live with this fear or worse to experience a rebellion. I discuss all of this in more detail in a piece I wrote in 2007 which was the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the trans-Atlantic slave trade by Britain.

As we commemorate the emancipation of our Caribbean forefathers, remember that the British in abolishing slavery also provided a large compensation package for the slave owners. The sum of money amounted to £20 million (£15 billion today) or about 40% of the national budget. The formerly enslaved of course received nothing. What is even more perverse is that the loan taken out at that time by the British government to fund the compensation package was not paid off until 2015. Thus, the British taxpayer was until recently, through payments to the holders of the slavery bonds, still contributing to the beneficiaries of slavery. This is the same British government and society that dismisses the descendants of the enslaved condescendingly, lecturing to them that they should move on and stop living in the past. This is the same British government and society that refuses to consider the just demands of Caribbean people for reparations. The same British government that argues absurdly that the slave trade and slavery were not illegal at the time and so they are not obliged to provide compensation for the heinous role they played in one of the worst crimes against humanity. For these people though, it is not a historical matter to be left behind when until February 2015 they were still reaping the benefits of the slavery abolition loan. The height of dishonesty, arrogance and hypocrisy.

In addition, as we celebrate August 1, we must be mindful that 180 years after abolition and 56 years after the decolonisation period in the British Caribbean commenced with Jamaica’s independence on August 6, 1962, we have a long way to go in the quest for true freedom. The legacy of colonialism and slavery endures in our tiny island states. Most of us continue to experience significant socio-economic challenges. Race and class considerations remain central factors in how our societies function. For example, in Barbados, the justice system still operates in two forms- one for the rich and white and nowadays Indian and one for blacks particularly those that are not rich. Just under a year ago, I penned a long article about the harsh realities of race in Barbados beyond the symbolism of its Emancipation statue. Last week, two prominent white Barbadian businessmen were charged with drug offences and anyone following the saga would have seen first-hand the playing out of the politics of race and class that I wrote about.

The Caribbean has much work to do. We need to examine in earnest these mental chains that impede us. An honest, brutal conversation about our past, how it looms large over us and how we must proceed is essential. Our intellectual giants started the process. It is necessary for us to build on it and propel it to the next level. It is also imperative that we do this together as a region. We are one people with a shared history of colonialism, slavery and exploitation. People to people relationships that transcend artificial borders have always been a central feature of our Caribbean reality. In addition, in a world of large and medium powers, we have no choice as small islands but to integrate. Our politicians with their egos and selfish interests have frustrated the institutionalisation of our deep ties. We the people must take the lead.


  • “Well Well Wot A Igrunt Parasite I Is claims to have a husband!! LOL.”

    yep..and a white one too for decades..laugh at that..

    Don’t mind Negro Lawson…it’s only now that he has reached his 3 scores and 10 years it has finally dawned on him and LowIQ45 that they are not as special as they were misled to believe, they are just as ordinary as the next black person..making it very difficult for then to get over their delusions of grandeur and superiority complex.


  • For all those still trying to apply makeup to cover up a wickedly racist colonial past, you will not get away with it, our descendants must know and remember the destruction Europe and North America left in its wake and in the lives of the black race…

    Two countries – Haiti and the Dominican Republic – share one island, but they’re vastly different worlds, shaped by a racist colonial history.

    Follow Vox’s Johnny Harris as he explores the divide:


  • our descendants must know and remember the destruction Europe and North America left in its wake and in the lives of the black race…SO NEITHER SIDE..of which many of us are BLOOD members..EVER REPEAT THE SAME MISTAKES IN THE FUTURE.


  • WW wrote,—–still does not mean that the evil white criminals who committed human genocide of black people and even the brutality against their own vulnerable groups in those days should be given a pass or made to forget, ya gotta remember it was the leaders perpetrated these crimes against black humanity. and others..ya think their descendants would not do even worse given the opportunity just to enrich themselves..

    What is even worse is the EVIL Black people that sold their own racial group that were POWs etc to whiteys. Very evil is the fact that Vikings marauded their way through Scotland, Ireland and England killing nufty people. (elsewhere in Europe too, France, Germany, Russia, Ukraine). The Irish were treated very badly by white English. So what does this teach us about today—nothing really has changed in that Whites still mistreat whites and as proven in Bim, blacks still mistreat blacks EXCEPT that it is milder in terms of mass killings.

    So since I have Viking, Irish, Scottish and English blood what should I do cut off half my body??????

    The reality is that it really is not about Race it is about Good vs EVIL!!!!

Or are Islamists no more dangerous than extremist Christians, Jews, and Buddhists?

  • You may have the last word, as usual.


  • @MB
    So since I have Viking, Irish, Scottish and English blood what should I do cut off half my body??????
    You are justifiably proud of your ancestry and so should you but I must say that the Viking part is new. Now your family has lived in Bim for centuries (according to you) and there is not one iota of African blood? Even John has admitted to having some black ancestors. Remember it only takes three generations for obvious racial differences to be concealed from the original if the right partners are engaged. Do you know how many families in the US are “white” while their black cousins (with the same surnames) live just over the county line? If this is true for the US it is doubly so for little 2×4 Barbados.

    Here is my suggestion send in your DNA to 23 and me and they will confirm the ancestry that you claim, if they do you can share it with us (or not), as for me I only have to look at my mum and I know that there is a bit of Liverpool or Bristol or London somewhere in the past.


  • WW dont let that husband of yours get too close to your knitting needles, if you said 20% rattle snake venom that wouldn’t shock me now if you said 20% Scottish I would be more skeptical. But a lot more people are claiming Scottish and German ancestry now that trump is president..


  • Please..those frauds claiming Scottish and German ancestry never took a genetic test in their lives and have no clue who are what they are that is why so many are shocked when they get their results cause they made up some delusional nonsense that most times fit a racist narrative and then get vex when they they get their test results and they are not only full fledged what they never dreamed about, but Africa features prominently in their bloodlines..

    Like the white supremacist who took the test and the results were read on national tv…..subsaharan African ancestry was so deep in his blood he nearly had a stroke when they read it, he still can’t recover..

    ….have you done your ancestry test yet Lawson??


  • No need


  • Don’t mind MoneyB…the test results says Scandanavia..many of my relatives including myself are also from that bloodline..of course the Vikings/Nordic featured prominently on that side of the world because they are Nordic wountries with western German dialects, but they all came out of the caucus mountains..although the caucus crowd also have a specific bloodline.

    and the Nordic people also traveled to the Caribbean region AND the Americas before lying christopher columbus..

    .another very old blood line running through most of my relatives is the Native American which includes Arawaks and Caribs, which means they were around throughout the Americas long before europeans..

    Through it all you find so many relatives, it is overwhelming.


  • Nah…ya afraid ya might be related to my cousin of pure African blood in Cote D’Ivoire..lol

    Afraid of what else ya might find.


  • Did I mention the European relatives…well geez..you really don’t choose ya family, but they are family.

    It is the reality of this “Handicap” which is responsible for the racial hatreds we find in the World today and yesterday. No one likes to know that they can’t do what everybody else can do, especially when it comes to something so “Basic” as being able to feed yourself, as normal people do by Farming.Therefore Caucasian ( Albinos ) resorted to the enslavement of “Pigmented” people to do the Farming work for them.
    In addition, Caucasian (Albino) stole land, raped ,murdered & tortured millions to attain albino dominance . They used the enslavement of Blacks people to make vast profits for themselves.

    This is unadulterated pup! White people conducted their farming in northern conditions for thousands of years. they would have died out from starvation otherwise. When they decided to grow tropical crops in the hot Sun they obviously had difficulty with the heat and decided to buy slaves from Africans who were more than willing to get rid of POWs / enemies that would have to be put to death anyway. this excrement about white people enslaving is nonsense all peoples had slaves it was pure economics. The Chinese sold their own female children into slavery if they had too high a ratio of females—pure economics. While it was not right to dominate others they way whites did, for the vast majority of humans domination was a certainty whether Black on black as in Bim over the last 10years OR white on white OR????? The desire to dominate is not a white only trait. Anyway blame Arabs et al for slavery since they caused Europeans to start shipping from the Far East because they Dominated land routes, charging very high tolls, when spices etc came across from the east ie Indonesia and India. Hence Prince Henry”The Navigator”of Portugal sent out ships from Cape St Vincent to explore Africa and find a route to the East.

    Albinos are not white people so try a lil research to comprehend the difference.


  • Akenatenl my mistake on the name.


  • WW, I agree that African blood must never forget and must progress towards equality in every respect. However, overplaying the victim card instead of working together to progress in my view is a mistake. Just check the examples set by Jews and Orientals who were treated badly by Whites too. Admittedly not as badly. Jews and Orientals, including Indians, are very successful in the USA today, far more so on average than whites in general. Why? The answer is what will help AfroAms, the teachings of people like Marcus Garvey, if employed would not have hurt either.

    I wrote based on DNA test info—mostly northern European with a smattering of Southern E. I have no problem with skin colour and like brown very much indeed. I have made it clear before that I know that my grandfather and his brothers, all over 6ft, were village rams and so there are many in Bim that have some similar blood to me. In fact a famous Bajan Surgeon is my great uncle’s out side child. I also know that several generations ago one of my relatives left $$$$$ in his Will for darker family. Make no mistake, some of those old fellas loved their dark woman more than the white wife, but had to keep up appearances.

  • WW,
    Did U see the Ancestry program with Prof Henry Louis Gates where he told Ms Malveaux and another darker lady about their white family? He told one that her 4G grand dad had obtained fredom from Slavery but then owned a plantation in Louisiana with slaves. HLG went on to say that there were 900 plantations in L with non white owners of slaves. I keep telling people the history is very complex and we need to simplify for today’s purposes 1 whites should not behave superior 2 AfroAms should not behave as if inferior 3 AfroAms must pursue lofty objectives and should receive a higher quality of education most likely via IT. 4 AfroAms must be encouraged to have hope and should be mentored by those who understand the key reasons why AfroAms / poor whites are not improving their lot. It comes down to Discipline, Education and positive attitude/ hope. Males have to be responsible for being fathers and stay in the home, young people must be encouraged not to have babies early, the formula is not too difficult but politicians / leaders are wutless!


  • The same hate that the whites who call themselves Christians hate muslims, is in the same vein as the whites who enslaved Africans and brutalised them.

    God made all things which includes all people and all religions man made to represent God in different manifestations.

    Muslims are mainly black and brown the hate of muslims is same racial hate of black and browns in a new disguise.

    Alt-white trolls are racists on internet and in politics. BU is becoming redundant like rest of web due the rise of the scum alt-right trolls


  • “I keep telling people the history is very complex and we need to simplify for today’s purposes 1 whites should not behave superior 2 AfroAms should not behave as if inferior 3 AfroAms must pursue lofty objectives and should receive a higher quality of education most likely via IT. ”

    Yep..that should be the plan, it is a complex history with everyone jumping on the bandwagon to be slave owners back then because it was trending , just like they all jump on the bandwagon today to beplantation owners , but that is just a cover up for gun running and drug trafficking purposes these days, different era,

    They all need to get with the program and put down the colonial shit, it has become useless and counterproductive….particularly in Barbados, you cannot hold on to the same destructive theme and expect different results.

    The ancestry testing is a gas…it is priceless to watch their faces when it dawns on them who their ancestors really were and who were slave owners and who were not..I especially like the part where who thought they were lily white end up with a good 20% or more of African blood rolling through their veins, it never fails to entertain..


  • 555, The fact is that the Arab Muslims enslaved Africans far earlier and longer than white Europeans. The Arabs also had a tendency to CUT off Afro males balls!!!!! So wake up and stop chatting racist shyte! Pretending to be a victim instead of getting of your backside and making progress is today’s major problem. Do U know that many medical schools in the USA permit entry to AfroAms with marks that are 20% LOWER than Asians!! There was a documentary with a really dark Indian that conned an UNI into seeing him as AfroAm and giving him entry on the basis of Race not grades.

  • The Nonsense of White Genes

    Have you heard this nonsense statement: “Black Americans have 24% European genes.”
    Now from that statement, a logical person would assume the Europeans have UNIQUE Genes that would of course be “WHITE” genes, and Blacks would have UNIQUE genes, which of course would be “BLACK” genes. 

    First and foremost: There is no such a thing as “White” genes! The reason for that is because a natural Modern Human is a “Black Skinned” African who evolved from earlier Homo-sapiens from about 400,000 years ago. Albinos, such as the European, evolved just 8,000 to 12,000 years ago, as a result of them foolishly breeding among themselves (which can only produce other Albinos), rather than as normally done – with a healthy Black only, which will produce mulattoes of various shades.
    The point being that the ONLY difference between original Black genes, and White (Albino) genes, are the h genetic mutations which m “WHITE SKIN” (Albinism):
    mutations of the following genes SLC24A5 , SLC45A2,
    MC1R, TYR, TYRP1 & OCA2 are seen at high frequency in Europeans.

    *Novel Mutations in MC1R Gene: First Evidence for OCA Type II Disease in Indian Population

    This is the first report providing genetic evidences for OCA type II disease associated with MC1R gene mutations. 

    MC1R gene mutation and its association with oculocutaneous albinism yype (OCA) phenotype in a consanguineous Pakistani family

    Oculocutaneous Albinism Type VI (OCA6) is associated with mutations in the SLC24A5 gene.

    Mutations of the TYR, OCA2, TYRP1,and SLC45A2 genes have been associated with Oculocutaneous Albinism (OCA1–4, respectively).

    Give those uppity albinos a history lesson about their existence, 70% of them are totally clueless about their own origins.

    Muslims are not racial like Whites.

  • There isn’t a case of claims for slavery against muslims being made, there is a case of claims against Anglo-Americans for Atlantic Slave Trade, muslims are outside that remit.

    Whites claiming slaves were bought from Africans is ignoring slave trading by Brits and Americans where they were sold for up to $1,000 ($70,000 equivalent making fortunes)

    Africans selling slaves to Brits would not have envisioned the brutality of treatment that they would receive as the tricksters pretended they would treat them well like human and not sub-humans animals.

    The crimes of white slavery are about white wickedness.


  • The history of the slave trade out of Africa to Caribbean and across the Americas and Europe will haunt them forever, it will never go away, it is not the type of curse that can be washed or wished away, it will continue to follow and stick…and the more they continue with the Arab story, which had nothing to do with slaves in the Caribbean, Europe or North America, the more their culpability will be highlighted.

    It’s theirs, they gotta own in, no Arabs were around the Caribbean, jews yes, they were entitled to a slave per family, that’s why they should never be allowed in the Caribbean again, but those who are still benefitting from slavery, gotta live with that curse that will outlive them all.

Against those who crave material possessions and wish to influence our subconscious behaviour by making us work for their benefit and keep it all. Herb allows you to reflect upon this and question why you should submit to their will, and helps you to understand that you are their equal, not in the sense of owning material things, but in the sense of why should you agree to their doctrine? This means that you are your own person, you own yourself; you are not enslaved; you do what you want to do; you are responsible for yourself and become free of their ways without caring what others think”

    Yes they were Rewarded for their Service, there Ball were cut off and their women were used as Sex Toys and any Children they had were Killed!

    Problem is that some here LIE & DECEIVE because they feel that they can get money from one set of people but not from the other Group!

    KIKI555 we understand where your loyalties are… Clear as Night from Day!

    Who is that you are Charging for these Reparations? Is it the English people? Or is it All of Europe? Or is it some of Europe?

    There were more slaves sent to South America than they were in the Caribbean and North America.

    Does these Reparations include those?

    And Since Everyone knows that life started in Africa and we are looking back that means that we are all Africans are we going to charge ourselves for this displacement of modern people?

    Barbados is the only country that was always under British rule in the Caribbean, if we are only charging England with these reparations what about the times when the other islands belonged to other European Countries?

    And if you ask for Reparations equal to what was paid to the Slave owners that would be 15 Billion Dollars as you have said in today’s dollars which works out to 200.and something dollars per man woman and child in the Caribbean with most of the money going to Cuba, Haiti, Santa Domingo and Jamaica.

    Or is this money going to the Governments of the Caribbean?

    I know of no Government in the Caribbean who is the same today as it was yesterday.

    In each and Everybody’s life we can point to instances of Unfairness of being taken advantage of although they are not in-comparison with the crime of Slavery who is going to pay for our unfairness and being taken advantage of?

    All that people have fought and died for, all our forefathers who desired to see a better society, up comes this crowd that looking to Create an Extortion Racket rather than embracing what we have now and moving forward.

    You don’t seek Progress you Use Revenge as your tool of Extortion!

(and vice versa). Race is used by “leaders” to divide people. Do U think that Muslim Guyanese believe that they are the same as Afro Guyanese, same for Trinidadians and other places where there are large such racial representations?

  • Who told you I hate whites. I hate racists. Two thirds of whites as are racists.

    My white friends would be calling out racism of whites too.


  • I’m not racist, I don’t hate muslims, despite propaganda washing your brains.

    I look at the wars against muslims and the hate as a clash between West and East.


  • This is not Black versus White, or Left versus Right or Jew versus Palestinian, this is a Good versus Evil, Freedom versus Tyranny and the culprit from the beginning of time has always been the Adversary. We have our eyes so clinched where they want us to in stirring up racism that we are forgetting the others that suffer Great Atrocities right now in real time, being slaughtered by the thousands.

    After the WWII genocide, we kept saying “never again”. But since then there has been Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and the Christians Middle Eastern territories. Even Saddam, as horrid as he was, never performed such atrocities. These people have lived there with their beliefs since the 5th century or earlier. Now convert to Islam or die. Are they less worthy of our outcries???

    A Rose by another name will still smell as sweet in much the same way Slavery to a Slave is STILL SLAVERY!

    The Chiefs in Africa used to war with each other and would sell their Captives European Traders to get them out of the Country so they would not have to fight them again.

    The Europeans engaged in the Slave trade as TRADERS they did not go into Africa and Conquer and capture Slaves.
    Have you heard about modern day Slavery in Africa? What do you call when Muslim Extremist in Africa raid villages and capture children and make them solders to fight their cause?

    Have you read of Boca Harran taking young women from their tribes and selling them as SEX SLAVES…Is that a different kind of Slavery??

  • Freedoms war seems to be a alt-right white troll war with memes for children in her wackie mind.


  • I agree with dub the Muslim countries should look after the worlds nuclear arsenal
